Shrimp, Avocado & Roasted Corn Salad

A favorite restaurant salad made at home!

Ingredients:

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 ears of sweet corn, shaved off the cob
  • 3 strips of bacon, diced
  • 1/2 lb. large shrimp, peeled with tails on or off
  • 4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/3 cup grated Fontina cheese (optional)
  • buttermilk pesto dressing (see below)

Buttermilk Pesto Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayo or Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pesto, homemade or storebought
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • pinch of salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

To Make The Salad:

Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the corn kernels and let them dry-roast for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until their edges begin to brown and caramelize. Transfer the corn to a plate to set aside.

Reduce heat to medium-high. In the same skillet, add the bacon. Fry for about 6 minutes, stirring ocassionally, until crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving the grease in the skillet.

Add the shrimp and saute until cooked and pink, about 2 minutes per side (depending on the size of your shrimp). Remove shrimp and set aside. (You're now done with your multi-tasking skillet!)

Assemble your salads by tossing together the Romaine, corn, bacon, shrimp and avocado. Drizzle with dressing and serve.

To Make The Dressing:

Whisk together all ingredients until blended. Season with salt and pepper.
